"The technician was very professional and explained everything he was doing. He had the part that was needed in his van and fixed the furnace. Total time was about 1 hour for troubleshooting and repair.
My only complaint is with the cost of the replacement part. I have no problem with the $170 service fee for a Saturday but I was charged $185 for a pressure switch. A quick look online and I found the same part number for approximately $50. I paid because I wanted my furnace running again but it just seemed a bit of an excessive markup.

"Provider called the morning of inspection to inform me when he would arrived. Provider explained to me each step he was doing as he inspected furnace. Provider preformed check points and cleaned furnace. This included the burners. (No other provider has ever cleaned my furnace burners during an inspection). Provider asked and answers all my questions. Provider was punctual, courteous and professional. I recommend him to others, and I will definitely use his services again.

"This is the second time I have dealt with Action. The first was at my sisters when she had a minor furnace issue, and the second was at my residence where the problem was not so minor. I called Action and
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
actually tried to help me resolve my issue over the phone which i appreciated, but the problem became major and he had to come out, and in a very timely manor considering the Polar Vortex that recently descended upon us. I like the way these guys operate show up, assess the problem (fried blower motor) layout the options and get going no pressure.They also don't mind giving advice that might help you save service calls. I would definitely recommend Action they're stand up guys. Oh yeah,

"I first encountered
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
through an Angie’s list promotion that they were offering. I was very pleased with the tune up that they had given me. So, I scheduled them to come in and install a automatic humidifier system on my forced-air heating system. They did an outstanding job and displayed an extremely high level of professionalism. Let me explain.
My house is old (1897) and full of wood. We have owned the house for almost five years, and I have always dreaded the dryness of winter. I finally got a hygrometer this year and started to measure my humidity level. It was registering anywhere from 20% to as low as 10% on some mornings. My sinuses have been suffering tremendously and my skin is itchy and dry . I have several pets who are trapped in this house all day. I have been seeing signs of itchy, dry skin on them, as well.
I had been thinking of investing in a few high quality room humidifiers, but I realized that I would be caught in a time-consuming cycle of filling and cleaning and that my pets would likely never get the best situation, since I would probably not leave them on while I was gone all day at work.
So, I called and spoke to owner,
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
, and he spent some time explaining to me the ins and outs of automatic humidification systems. He explained that on the unit they recommend, the Aprilaire 600a, there are two choices as to how it will run. You can set it so that it turns on anytime the furnace is blowing, or you can set it up to run independently of the furnace, with its own humidistat determining when it should turn on and off, based on your true humidity level. He explained in a very detailed way that some people (people who tend to be cold by nature) find that they
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
’t like it when you set it up to run independently because it means that unheated air is sometimes blowing out your heat registers. He said that if I found out that I did not like that feature, I could call them after installation and they would make the alteration free of charge. He also spent a bit of time explaining that their price includes a five year warranty, which includes a yearly service for the first five years. I said I would opt to include that warranty, since we really would want someone coming in for the annual maintenance.
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
said that they would call me in a few days when they could fit the job in. He said that he had seen my system recently, so he didn’t think he needed to come out and take a look at it. I said that I was really interested to move quickly. He actually called me a few days later on Friday night to let me know that his technicians could come out on Saturday, which was awesome for me, since I didn’t have to rearrange my work schedule.
The workers actually showed up during our first
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
snowstorm. I was pretty impressed that they were even out working on a day like that.
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
(I hope I have their names right!), were extremely good natured, professional and pleasant. They made every effort to close the door, to keep the pets in, and to brush the snow off of their shoes. I wish that every company had such conscientious workers.
Upon arriving at the house, the workers were a little surprised to discover that our basement drain was not in an expected location for the job. Undaunted, they called
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
, who said that they would include a pump and piping at no extra charge, since he didn’t factor that in to his quote. That was really above and beyond! I was totally prepared to pay for the extra part, since I understood that our old house is sometimes difficult to deal with. Nonetheless, they took care of it for me, and kept me at the original quoted price, despite the extra parts and labor.
If that weren’t enough, they were in for another surprise. My husband and I were doing laundry and our sink managed to clog in a MAJOR way right while the guys were working. This meant that it over-flowed all over the floor in the room where they were working. We immediately started to get on the phone with our plumber. However, the guys just said that they would take care of it. They managed to unclog the drain for us so that they could continue working. They also provided us with a little instruction in how we could prevent problems in the future. Again, they went above and beyond the scope of their work in order to fix an unexpected problem. Really amazing!
In all, the job took a few hours. It is now about an hour after the install was complete. I can already feel a huge difference in the quality of the air in the house. My skin and sinuses already feel better. My independent hygrometer has already registered a humidity increase from 13% to 30% in the upstairs bedroom, and it looks like it will continue to climb.
I LOOOOVE my humidifier and I completely recommend
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
. I definitely plan to use them in the future. You can feel very good about the quality and professionalism of this company.

"Met with
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
about a month before service. He was very knowledgeable and gave several recommendations. I thought his quote was high at first as this was my first quote for a furnace so I checked around. Turns out after 6 different companies came in and quoted me his price ended up being one of the cheapest for the service you get. They have a ten year labor warranty and Rheem covers the furnace for ten years on parts. Also was lucky in that when I called him to come back out our Humidifier was free as they were currently running a special. Their technician
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out and installed the furnace in two days. When they were done everything was cleaned up and we had no problems. In October we used the heat for the first time to check it out and it worked great. We purchased the two stage furnace with a variable speed blower and you can barely tell it is on. In November we had a problem with the furnace as the house would not heat past 64 degrees. I called
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
and that afternoon he was out and fixed the issue. It was a manufacturer issue that he was made aware of the day before.

has been beyond great to work with and I can't say enough about the integrity of this company. My first electric and heating bill was cheaper with this furnace than my old 90% efficient furnace. I am a very satisfied customer.

"Follow up to original review and counterpoint to Provider’s response:

The second inspection was performed by a veteran technician with all the certifications and licenses required to perform the work. Not his first day at the rodeo. He did a complete inspection (visual, flame deviation and gas leak) of the heat exchanger in particular and furnace in general and gave it a clean bill of health. Under the same cloud of liability as any company that looks at the furnace, he found no cracks, no leakage, nothing to merit shutting the furnace off or replacing it.

The advantage of using an infrared camera for visual inspection is the ability to share the view on the monitor with the customer and/or to record the inspection. However, there is no industry standard that recognizes or promotes the use of infrared cameras over standard light and mirror visual inspection. The camera does not provide a clearer visual, only one that is easier to share and/or record.

Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
did not record the inspection and nothing the technician showed me on the monitor was a crack. He did not threaten to disable the furnace because he didn’t bother to check for carbon monoxide. My CO alarms are not conspicuous and the technician was not told of them. You would think with all those cracks a CO test would have been performed. Why just shut off the furnace when disabling it may be the safer route?

They
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
’t put safety switches on furnaces just for sh*ts and giggles. They are there for a reason, can be tested and are fairly reliable for what they are supposed to do.

The following is from a blog by Watkings Heating and Air Conditioning of Springboro, OH. The complete article can
be found @ http://www.watkinsheating.com/blog/cracked_heat_exchangers/

Proper diagnosis of a failed or cracked heat exchanger.

Diagnosis of a heat exchanger crack typically starts with a no-heat service call. A cracked heat exchanger allows air from
the furnace blower to interfere with the flame causing it to flutter or even roll out. This trips a safety switch and shuts down the furnace. Beware of an unethical technician who finds a crack with a camera on a furnace that seems to be running just fine. While big cracks start as small ones, some technicians will
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
for anything that looks like a crack in order to sell a new furnace and earn a commission. we've even seen some technicians draw a line on the heat exchanger with a pencil, show the homeowner the line on a fiber optic camera, and convince them that it is a dangerous crack. In 2009, the AHRI published a guideline for inspecting heat exchangers which states: "Any crack or hole that is big enough to affect combustion will be easily visible to the naked eye. Do not use water, cameras or smoking agents to check for leaks. Furnace heat exchangers joints are not hermetically sealed, so a small amount of leakage is normal."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The most important message in all of this is to have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home (no matter how new/reliable your HVAC system is) and to ALWAYS get a second opinion on the replacement of large appliances/systems.

Original review:

There were no issues with the furnace when the service call was placed. The unit was working fine--no unusual noises, turned on and off per the thermostat settings and did the job of heating the house. The service call was for the annual inspection and cleaning of the furnace.
Technician claimed to find "at least four" cracks in the heat exchanger. He shut off the furnace and placed a "
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
-Operating this equipment without corrective action by a qualified person may cause serious property damage, personal injury or death". Carbon monoxide poisoning is the issue when a heat exchanger goes bad. He stated that the furnace should be replaced as soon as possible and to keep the unit turned off until then.
I was skeptical of the diagnosis because: 1) He was in the basement for half an hour and the only thing he did was check the heat exchanger (no cleaning, no filter change, no inspection of other parts); 2) The views he showed me on his remote camera did not show anything that looked like cracks--"See that one?" "
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
, no"; 3) The furnace is 12 years old and well maintained. It undergoes annual cleaning/inspection; the filters are changed on a regular basis; and the humidity/climate in the basement where the furnace is located is well regulated. All of these things contribute to the well-being of an HVAC system. 4) There are more safety switches in today's furnaces than child safety locks at Kensington Palace for Prince
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Most, admittedly not all, furnaces with "at least four" cracks in the heat exchanger would have shut down on their own. 5) There are multiple carbon monoxide detectors on every level of my two story house and the readings are normal and they have not "peeped" once.
"At least four" cracks in the heat exchanger and the technician watched when I turned the furnace back on. Dangerous enough to turn the furnace off and frighten the homeowner into an unnecessary furnace replacement, but not so bad to let her risk staying in the house with all the CO when she turns the unit back on. Really?
Told the technician I would be getting a second opinion, but allowed him to schedule a salesman to estimate replacement cost just in case. The One Hour salesman came the same night, told me how trustworthy the technician was and provided informal quotes (on yellow legal pad paper?) for furnace or heat exchanger replacement. He offered temporary space heaters (talk about your CO levels) until the unit could be replaced. Declined the offer.
On 11/12/13 a technician from a different HVAC (reputable and licensed) company did a thorough inspection of the furnace and found no cracks in the heat exchanger; declared the furnace in very good working condition; and told me there was no need to replace anything.
One Hour called today to follow up on their service and were told the results of the second inspection. They didn't argue the point, but the owner called later to offer their 300% money back guarantee. No thank you. Cost me two service calls and an extra half day off work, but great value in knowing not to trust everyone with a company truck and yellow page listed service.
Always get a second opinion for major appliance replacements. Arm your house with smoke/fire and carbon monoxide detectors. They are worth every penny and save you from calamities and unethical furnace people.

"Great! showed up on time, spent quite a bit of time inspecting the furnace and the humidifier. Gave me some valuable information about problem codes. Will call
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
for any future HVAC work.

UPDATE: my furnace went out yesterday and
Toledo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
came by the same day. It turned out to be a loose connection and he didn't even charge me for it. Much appreciated."

"We needed an annual service check for the furnace and I also had a question about a sound that I was hearing occasionally when the furnace starts up in the morning. I had recorded the sound to be able to show it to the technician, and my mind was put at-ease quickly when he said it wasn't anything to worry about. The check-up went smoothly and was completed in about 15 minutes. I appreciate the honesty of the people at Action -- they don't try to take advantage of a situation to sell you something that you don't really need. we've used them for two years now and they're the one we'll call for any future service.
